Court arrests co-owner of Sibir-Neft
Poor quality fuel provided by the company allegedly damaged the vehicles of a municipal enterprise in the Moscow Region.
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow placed co-owner of the Sibir-Neft gas station network Olga Vazyagina under house arrest until November 18. In the near future, the court will decide of a preventive measure for Alexander and Yevgeny Vazyagins, who are leading one of the largest oil depots in Solnechnogorsk, reports TASS.
Investigators of the MIA’s Main Investigative Directorate for the Moscow Region suspect the Vazyagins of especially large-scale fraud (part 4 of Article 159 CCRF). According to the investigators, the company was selling poor-quality fuel, which led to the breakdown of the vehicles of one of the municipal enterprises in Orekhovo-Zuyevo near Moscow. The damage caused amounted to 9.7 million rubles ($ 150,000). In the court, Olga Vazyagina stated that she did not conduct any economic activity and did not have a relationship with the municipal enterprise in question.
The Sibir-Neft network has 24 gas stations in Moscow and the Moscow, Ryazan, Vladimir and Penza regions. The owners of the company claim that their criminal prosecution is a consequence of the refusal to sell their business.
